7 March 2008 – Jenson Button completed his last day of testing ahead of the opening race in Melbourne next week. The Briton was testing with the Honda Formula One team in Jerez behind closed doors and was positive about the team's results.
"Our final test before the start of the season went well this week and it was very useful to evaluate the new developments that we have on the car," Button said. "We completed some long run work in preparation for the race weekends and I was pleased that we have made a step forward in terms of performance. We are realistic about our expectations for the first few races and know that we still have a long way to go."
